  GrahamClayton: 33...hg2 loses to 34.♕d7+ ♔g8 35.♕e8+ ♔g7 36.♕e7+, so Keres has to settle for an endgame, which also loses.
Aug-24-12  Cemoblanca: The position after 30.Nd1 looks pretty amazing. At first sight, one could think that Black holds the initiative here, but surprisingly it is White who holds the initiative! ;0) Instead of 30...Qg3 Black should try immediately 30...h3!? to "fix" the White Queen to the 2nd rank, because of g2. For example: 31.Bxf4 exf4 32.c3 a6 33.Kf1 h2! 34.Qd7+ Ng7! 35.Qh3 Qh5! 36.Nf2! a5, etc. & Penrose would have good drawing chances here (or maybe even more).
